Each pack contains 25 mini-comics appropriate for readers of all ages and is available to pre-order exclusively from your local comic book shop. Mini-comic packs will be available for pick-up and purchase starting September 28th and throughout the month of October leading up to Halloween.
Give kids an extra treat in their Halloween goodie bags with 13 great mini-comic titles to choose from, including Archie’s Madhouse, The BoooOOOoooM! Box Halloween Special, Grumpy Cat, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Manga, Pokémon X&Y, and more. Each pack carries a retail price of $4.99 and contains 25 copies each of a single kid-friendly mini-comic title.

“The mini-comics are a perfect alternative or complement to Halloween candy,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Michael Moccio. “You won’t have to worry about dietary preferences or restrictions with these fun stories that inspire kids to read. This makes them perfect to pass out on Halloween, use as party favors, or give as classroom treats!”
